People Stealing my Affiliate link ID

need help here. I have a feeling people are stealing my affiliate link ID code. When I check the referring url column in my affiliate hits log, it's obvious the affiliate code has been taken out. When I click on the edited affiliate link, this is the message I get:

"Bad Request
Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.
Additionally, a 400 Bad Request error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Please how do I solve this? It's costing me commissions.

Thanx

Hello,

Where are you posting your affiliate code links? You meant, someone is editing your links?

Come to think of it I believe my affiliate link has been edited. The original link on all my blog posts work just fine.

Can you point us where these links are? Sorry we cannot help you further. If you have posted them on a third party website, most likely they will be edited since there are sites that do not like to have affiliate promoters on their pages.

The links are on my blog. This has been happening quite regularly. And it's causing me considerable stress.

Connection shrouding is a technique used to make a long offshoot URL interface into a shorter and prettier one—frequently to the drawback of a brand. One of the most widely recognized types of connection shrouding happens when an offshoot doesn't utilize its own URL by any means, yet rather just appropriates a brand's URL with no divulgence.

If you have an affiliate link on your blog or website that you think has been compromised, you may want to consider "affiliate link cloaking." Google it. It's a process of legitimately hiding your affiliate link code from scammers. It's also easier to track your "cloaked affiliate link," when web hijackers try to break into your site and manip the code to theirs so they can steal your "affiliate commissions."
